Studio Audience Podcast

Studio Audience – Series Two, Episode Three with typefaces, the Design Museum and angry artists

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Ok so for various reasons too dull to explain here (or a velociraptor attack if you’d prefer us to make something up) we had to postpone this week’s podcast for 24 hours. But to make up for that delay we tried extra hard and hope we’ve produced 23 minutes of art and design chat to knock your socks off (toenails if you’re reading this sockless like some sort of maverick).

There’s the usual mix of stuff we loved from the site this week, plus our take on news and issues from around the creative industries. Oh, and worth a listen for Liv’s weird broken spoon analogy and my pitch-perfectly pithy summation of S Club 7. Enjoy!

And here’s the links you may need:

Section One

From the site we discussed Beck’s new album which comprises of a set of illustrated song sheets published by the excellent folk at McSweeneys, Penjet, the printer which uses felt tips and Dalton Maag’s Rio 2016 typeface.

Section Two

In this section we discussed the Design Museum’s 2013 programme which includes shows for Sir Paul Smith, Barber Osgerby and Dunne & Raby and then we had a chat about the responsibility sites like ours have towards the artists we publish (with some of the similar themes explored in this piece).

The best things we saw this week

    Certain things signal that we’ve broken the back of the week – the intensification of social plans, the sing-song siren call of the weekend and the arrival of our Studio Audience podcast. This week we’re taking on all the big issues (in a specific art and design context) – including Grayson Perry’s Dream House project, Airbnb floating a 70-tonne house down the Thames (plus backlash!) and this year’s Designs of the Year category winners.

We look at JR’s cover for The New York Times Magazine plus Anorak’s new venture and an interesting project from Vangardist Magazine to tackle HIV stigma.

    This episode of the podcast finds me, Liv Siddall, having a good old chinwag with assistant editor Maisie Skidmore and art director Ali Hanson about all things news-related. Here we chat the new episode of Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, Tracey Emin’s My Bed, and whether or not celebrity-backed projects such as Lauren Laverne’s The Pool or Jay-Z and co’s Tidal Wave should be immediately classed as any good.

    Sometimes on the podcast we have enlightening discussions about pertinent art and design issues, and sometimes we make silly puns. Well this week dear listener we tick both of those boxes with some terrific chat about magazines, Designs of The Year and ELCAF but we also take a few minutes for canine-based tomfoolery. Take that expectations!
